    Tim Tebow is so Disrespectful
    by AvengerRam_old
    As of now, Tim Tebow is not the Broncos starting QB. Kyle Orton is. This is not a huge shock because... put simply, Orton is the better QB right now.

    So how does Tebow react?

    Really, Timmy? It was your dream, huh? And what do you think Orton was dreaming about? Selling shoes?

    As for it being "grabbed away"... please. Its a competition. You're losing right now. Deal with it.

    It gets worse. Next, we have to read this:

    That's nice. You rely on your faith. Because, after all, you have a monopoly on faith .

    Tim, why don't you show some respect for your teammate and go win the job on the field. Whining to the media that you were dropped on the depth chart is not how you get to be a starter in this league....

    Tip Sheet: Tebow impresses Herock

    Tip Sheet: Tebow impresses Herock
    By Len Pasquarelli
    Friday, January 22, 2010

    In nine years of preparing draft-eligible players for the interview process at the NFL combine, Ken Herock has worked with more than 500 players, including 40 quarterbacks, readying them for the crucial Q-and-A session that each prospect must undergo at the February audition in Indianapolis.

    But never has Herock -- a longtime talent evaluator who spent most of his 40 seasons in the league as a personnel director or general manager -- encountered a product like Florida QB Tim Tebow.

    In an unsolicited phone call to earlier this week, Herock, who worked with Tebow for several hours, uncharacteristically gushed about the Gators' star.

    "He's by far the best [prospect] with whom I've ever worked," said Herock, who operates "Pro Prep," a popular service that simulates a combine interview and familiarizes players on the subjects with which they will be confronted by league scouts. "He walks into a room and he just energizes it. Whatever 'it' is, he's definitely got 'it.' … Even for a guy like me, who's done this for so long, you almost get goosebumps."

    The 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, and one of the most celebrated players in recent college history, Tebow has received decidedly mixed predictions about his NFL future from critics evaluating the 2010 talent pool. Most rate him behind at least two quarterback prospects, Jimmy Clausen of Notre Dame and Oklahoma's Sam Bradford, and some have him rated even with Colt McCoy of Texas. Citing his low delivery and an elongated release, critics contend that Tebow lacks the physical skills that will make him a first-round selection.

    Others suggest Tebow must play another position -- fullback, H-back or perhaps linebacker or safety -- in the NFL. It conjures up memories of 2001 Heisman winner Eric Crouch of Nebraska, a college quarterback drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the third round in 2002 as a wide receiver. He failed to make it at that position or at safety.

    The four-hour tutorial designed by Herock doesn't necessarily deal with a player's athletic skills. But Herock has long believed that a top-flight quarterback is necessary to win in the NFL, and during his league career, he drafted prominent passers such as Doug Williams, Steve Young, Chris Miller and Brett Favre. He has an estimable track record at the game's most difficult position. This week he took some time out to watch and evaluate Tebow on the practice field.

    Tebow is working on his physical skills with former NFL quarterback Zeke Bratkowski. Onetime NFL quarterbacks coach Marc Trestman, currently head coach of the CFL's Montreal Alouettes, has worked some with Tebow at the blackboard on the mental part and X's and O's of the game. After playing in coach Urban Meyer's spread offense,...

    Tebow to unveil new delivery at pro day
    by Guest
    By Adam Schefter
    Tim Tebow is, essentially, painting over the masterpiece he created at the University of Florida.
    In an effort to quiet his critics and refine his game, Tebow is changing the way he holds a football, shifting it from his waist to his shoulder. He is concentrating on taking three- and five-step drops instead of working out of the shotgun formation he used at Florida.
    He will not unveil Tebow 2.0 at this week's scouting combine in Indianapolis, preferring instead to wait for his pro day at the University of Florida on March 17.
    But until then, he will continue working on improving his fundamentals in an effort to improve his draft position and his game.

    Cliff Welch/Icon SMI Tim Tebow, throwing a pass in Senior Bowl practice last month, hopes to improve his draft stock with a new approach that includes drop-back passing.

    "I'm not changing who I am or how I approach football," Tebow said Sunday night from Nashville, Tenn., where he has been busy remaking the style that was good enough to win one Heisman Trophy and two national championships at Florida.
    "But there are things that I can get a lot better at -- my fundamentals. I've never been asked to shorten or quicken my release and not have a loop in it. The changes I'm making have gone very well and it's becoming more and more natural to me."
    Asked if he would have embarked on such an extensive and exhausting process had his performance at the Senior Bowl not been so roundly criticized, Tebow said: "Probably, just because of the quarterback coaches I've been working with. I want to get better. I want to be around people who will push me. I will do anything to get better. Without hearing the criticism, I would have done it.
    "It's made me more confident, more accurate. And that's not to say I haven't had this type of coaching in the past. I just have had different coaching than this NFL style."
    Tebow has been tutored in a pro-style way by working with a coaching team that includes former NFL offensive coordinator Zeke Bratkowski, Montreal Alouettes head coach Marc Trestman, Arizona State's new offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone and former NFL head coach Sam Wyche.
    Bratkowski has concentrated on getting Tebow to raise the football to where it now does not dip lower than his shoulder. The delivery that allowed Tebow to complete over 67 percent of his passes at Florida but the one that also was roundly questioned during and after the Senior Bowl has begun to be made over at the pre-draft workouts in Nashville.
    Much of the work has started with Tebow's feet, which were accustomed to working out of a shotgun offense. Bratkowski and others have drilled Tebow on the requisite footwork that he will need to become a successful NFL quarterback.
    You're not looking at the same quarterback. To say we're there 100 percent where we want to

    Tebow to Speak at Anti-Semitic/Homophobic Pastor's Church
    by AvengerRam_old

    I'm going to presume that Tebow does not share this Pastor's views. Rather, I think he just craves attention, and this is a big forum for him to speak at. Still, to me this shows extremely poor judgment.

    Reason #328 why I'm glad he's not on the Rams....

    Tim Tebow... sure.
    by Rambunctious
    I can't believe I am typing this... but I am ok with Tebow coming on board. I have more than once posted "No to Tebow" and I still don't see him as a long time solution but...

    1) I would rather watch a young, physically talented, hardworking, athlete compete on the field then to watch a deer-in-the-headlights veteran.

    2) With a few players unable to control their temper, it might be time to get at least A pillar back on the team.

    3) Marketing wise it might help the stands stay full and would put a crap load of national media attention on the horns. Hey we might even get some prime time TV games.

    4) Best case scenario we win some close games and it forces Schotty to try some new things.

    5) Worse case scenario we have a terrible season that would be blamed on him, Tebow would then fade away into obscurity and everyone would welcome Sammy back with open arms.
